International work can strengthen research such as by broadening perspectives, improving generalizability, and cross-country/culture comparisons. However, international research also brings unique challenges and barriers. This teleconference covers some of the barriers to international research and how they can be overcome with a panel of experienced researchers.

Panelists:
 
Professor Shanthakumar Rajaratnam, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

Prof. Rajaratnam is Professor of Psychology in the School of Psychological Sciences and Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences at Monash University. His research program investigates the role of the internal biological clock in the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle, and how disruption of the clock leads to sleep disorders and other physiological consequences (e.g., in shift workers). He has also worked on developing innovative approaches to monitor alertness and novel treatments for biological clock disruption. Prof. Rajaratnam has built collaborations and partnerships with institutions around the world, including regular exchanges with Harvard Medical School and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
